Sedation Dentistry

We fully understand that many people are anxious about visiting the dentist. Since we don’t want fear to hold you back from getting the dental care you need, we offer sedation dentistry to improve your experience. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax while we perform a dental treatment. At the same time, you will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings. Instead of avoiding dental procedures, ask us about sedation dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide  Austin, TX

Nitrous Oxide

Dental nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a colorless and odorless gas that is commonly used in dental procedures to help patients relax and reduce anxiety. It is administered through a mask that fits over the nose, and the patient inhales the gas mixed with oxygen. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative that helps patients feel more comfortable during dental treatments. It works by slowing down the body’s response to pain and inducing a sense of relaxation and euphoria. The effects of nitrous oxide are quickly reversible with the administration of at least 5 minutes of pure oxygen after the procedure is completed. The mask can then be removed, allowing patients to resume their normal activities without any lingering side effects. If you are feeling apprehensive, please ask us about this form of sedation.
